The programme will soon be available.

This two-day event is part of an ongoing research project: Practicalities of Hellenistic Ruler Cults (PHRC). PHRC investigates Greek ritual practice as addressed to political leaders in the Hellenistic world, from Alexander to Augustus.

At a further level of the project development, a website will provide free access to XML-encoded, semantically annotated editions of a growing number of relevant Greek inscriptions, starting from the Aegean islands, Asia Minor, and Cyprus. Each text will be accompanied by an English commentary and by multilingual translations (English, Italian, French). Direct links to many internal and external authority lists will also be available, to make PHRC a useful e-tool for students and researchers. All the project-produced material is released with a free license CC-BY-SA 4.0 International.

For those interested in the development of the projet and in sharing news about relevant publications and events, a fb page @PHRCsocial has been created.
